The Canon 400mm f/5.6L USM

Canon’s most affordable “L” quality supertelephoto, the 400mm f/5.6 is lightweight (considering its reach and quality) and known for providing extremely sharp images, even with the aperture wide open. While its weight allows it to be easily handheld, it does not have image stabilization, so using a tripod is recommended in less than ideal lighting conditions.

Roger's Take

This is an old design. Doesn’t have any image stabilization. Doesn’t have fourteen aspherical ultra-low-dispersion fluorite elements. Why don’t they update it, you ask? Because they don’t need to, that’s why. It’s lightweight, it’s sharp as could be, it autofocuses quickly, it’s reasonably priced. If you’ve got good sunlight, this is a great choice.

Are we out of stock?

If you don't see exactly what you're looking for and that makes you sad, please give us a shout. We might have good news for you. Here's a link to our contact form.

We offer a 3-day inspection period on all sales, during which time you may return the item for a refund of the purchase price, not including shipping.

On this item, we include a LensAuthority 90-day limited warranty. This warranty covers damage that arises from normal use of the item. It does NOT cover accidental or intentional damage. More details are available in our FAQ section.

In addition to the standard 90-day warranty, you may have the option to purchase an extended warranty. If we're able to offer an extended warranty on this item, you'll see a checkbox to add that warranty - see the area just above the "Add to Cart" button.

If you select the extended warranty, you'll get additional protection from Consumer Priority Service ("CPS"). The CPS warranty will take effect after our 90-day warranty ends. However, the CPS warranty term would begin on the date of purchase. For example, if you buy an item with a 2-year extended warranty today, your coverage would end two years from today.
